My Hoarding Catastrophe ~ Triple Stack

Hi everyone!

I'm here to give you a book haul today. My Hoarding Catastrophe is my version of a book haul here on Olivia's Catastrophe. PLEASE NOTE that I haven't posted a book haul in three months time... so all the books here have been growing over that period of time. Not just in a week or month! I've actually counted all the books I own, unread and read. But that's a blog post for another time...

Physical Books: Some for review, some bought...

River of Ink - Paul M. Cooper (for review)
Believe Like a Child - Paige Dearth (for review)
Revenants, The Odyssey Home - Scott Kauffman (for review)
Exile for Dreamers - Kathleen Baldwin (for review)
Sovereignty - Anjenique Hughes (for review)
Ruin and Rising - Leigh Bardugo 
The Dead Man - Nora Gold (for review)
Demon Road - Derek Landy 
Song for Princes - Janell Rhiannon (for review)
Just Listen - Sarah Dessen 
My Heart and Other Black Holes - Jasmine Warga

Freebies: Gotta love/hate 'em, right?

Imperfect Chemistry - Mary Frame
Fame - Jillian Dodd
Queen of Someday - Sherry D. Ficklin

For Review: Why do I do this to myself? (But I'm looking forward to reading them). I know you may not be able to tell from this lot, but I have gotten better at requesting less! Usually in three months time there would be three times this - this is about the size of what my one month hauls used to look like. I'm glad it's cutting down, but still >.>

Olivia-Savannah x


  1. Yay! I'm so glad to hear that you're back from your vacation! I hope you enjoyed it! :) I know you've had a while since you were able to really post like you want to and MY. GOODNESS. did you read a lot! You read a lot more than I would have been able to! Glad to see you're back at it again. xoxo!

    1. I really did have a blast! I'm so happy to finally be back properly :D

  2. Holy, Hannah! That's a lot of books, Olivia. I'm excited to see some books here. But I'm looking forward to reading your thoughts on Vinegar Girl. I hope you'll enjoy these!

    1. I'm looking forward to reading all of them! Although I should really tone down the books >.>

  3. Book hoarding, you say? Waving right here. :)

  4. I'm reading 'As I Descended' atm - it's really good! Also, it's good that you've cut down on the requesting... maybe cut down a little more? ;) Just a thought!

    1. I'm glad you're enjoying it so far, and it makes me feel positive about this one. And yes, I'm working on cutting it down a little more :D

  5. I see P.S. I Like You which is super cute and adorable and I actually loved it! :D

    1. I just read your review of it! Glad you loved it so much, I can't wait to read it now ^.^

  6. Wow, that is A LOT of books! I hope you enjoy them all. :)

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  7. Wow, you're the queen of book hauls this month!! I'm really looking forward to reading your review for 'As I Descended' because it just sounds so interesting! I hope you love most of these books!

    1. It seems a lot of people are interested in that one! I am gonna have to boost it up on my list!

  8. I have a few of these that I'm looking forward to reading; Dragon Springs Road, The Girl from Venice, and Yesternight. Girl In Pieces is such a great book. I will be reviewing it on Friday with a giveaway. I have Vinegar Girl on my TBR, but some of the reviews have me hesitant to read it right now. Do you still want to buddy read Exile for Dreamers? I've been so busy that I completely forgot about it.

    1. I'm looking forward to all of those too! I'll look out for your review of Girl in Pieces ;) Also, about the buddy read I'll reply on your blog so I'm sure you'll get it <3

  9. You so remind me of myself with all your books! Of course your list is over a longer time, so you can forgive yourself for that. I am also looking forward to the new Alex Flinn one. Lots of great books there!

    1. Hehe, I'm glad we are similar like that! But yes, it's getting better with requesting and now all I can hope is that next month the haul is much much smaller. :)

  10. Wow. You may burrow down into a pile of books and never emerge. :) I want to let you know Olivia that I nominated you for the Liebster Award.

    1. I actually wouldn't mind doing so seeing as school is fast approaching xD Thanks for the nomination!

  11. My head is spinning! Geez, Olivia, that's a lot of books. Best of luck with them. The last book I purchased was The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry.

    1. Hehe thanks. I'll try and work my way through all of them soon. That one sounds cool!

  12. Wow! Amazing! I would love to get lost there!

    1. Hehe plenty of books to be reading during your stay :3

  13. Wow -- that is a lot of great books there. I just brought home this Aussie YA called Lucy and Linh. It's really cute so far!
    Jen @ YA Romantics

    1. I've heard good things about Lucy and Linh! I hope you will be able to enjoy it a lot ^.^
